Study: TN Medcaid Population UP 25% under Obamacare

Mandated Expansions: All the health bills before Congress depend on a massive Medicaid expansion to expand coverage. If Congress raises eligibility to 133% of the federal poverty level, 33 states would see their Medicaid populations increase by 30%, and 10 states would see their Medicaid populations jump by 50%. Of course, this scenario is far worse if Congress moves eligibility to 150% FPL, as proposed by the Senate HELP Committee.
